Title: The Acquisition of Verbs and their Grammar
Subtitle: The Effect of Particular Languages
Edited By: Insa Gülzow
URL: http://www.springer.com/978-1-4020-4336-9
Series Title: Studies in Theoretical Psycholinguistics
Description:

*Empirical evidence from a huge variety of languages including English,
Hebrew and Russian
*Non-partisan approach means that empirical research evidence is discussed
without subscribing to either of the two main theoretical perspectives
*Includes material concerning the impact of frequency on the acquisition of
verbs

This volume investigates the linguistic development of children with regard
to their knowledge of the verb and its grammar. The selection of papers
brings to researchers and in particular psycholinguists empirical evidence
from a wide variety of languages from Hebrew, through English to Estonian.
The authors interpret their findings with a focus on cross-linguistic
similarities and differences, without subscribing to either a UG-based or
usage-based approach.
